    I just found my third medium sized hat box in blue for $5 IMG_1896.JPG

    Then I found this very snazzy leopard print which is larger at the same cost of $5 Leopard hat box.JPG

    And it even fits my Akubra Stylemaster Leopard hat box top.JPG

    Lancel Automatic lighter, silver-plated, found for 15€ in working condition ! :)
    Don't know when it was made, but I would say 1940s-1950s.

    Nice find! I have one similar to yours, makes a great display case. Plus, it cuts down on dusting!

    Not terribly vintage looking, but given how painfully slim the pickings in 100% linen are around here, I had to go with it. The colour initially seemed odd, but I find it growing on me. With the side vents, decent fit and not-terribly-thin lapels, I rather like it I think. At least it will permit me to be somewhat dapper and not roast to death when summer comes!

    Came with an original tag still attached and the vents still stitched shut. I suspect this jacket may never have been worn! Not too bad for $17.99 I suppose.

    Good deal! Sure enough can't build one for that cheap!

     
  14. I picked it up at the seller's house and got to see his petroliana collection. :)
     
  15. You didn't buy that too? :p
     
  16. He said he might be selling off part of his collection so who knows?
     
  17. I knew it! I knew it! :p

    Found another neat piece of luggage, in red this time. Made in Australia by A G Blackwell. And dig that groovy lining!

    And this other piece, no lining, sadly

    But wait, there's more

    I found one of my Holy Grail items this week too. A shooting stick

  20. Picked up this vintage University of Missouri sweatshirt at the DAV thrift -- at least I think that is the school represented (unless it is Memphis State or some high-school). I think it might be from the '60s based on the Creslan (acrylic) reference on the tag. I have not been able to find this graphic anywhere out there, so if someone has better Google foo let me know what you find.

    Thanks,

    Bob
